Baylor Opens as 10.5-point Home Favorite Over TCU

Vegas still apparently believes in the 2014 Baylor Bears, pinning them as 10.5-point favorites over the TCU Horned Frogs at the open.

It's Sunday afternoon, and that means two things: NFL games and CFB lines.  Actually, it means quite a few more things than that, but I need you to roll with me here.  According to a few places online, Baylor has now opened as a 10.5-point favorite over the TCU Horned Frogs in this Saturday's game at McLane Stadium in Waco.

This is, if we're being honest, more than I expected.  When we talked about it last night in the PGT, I predicted a spread of something like Baylor -6 or -7 based off the fact that we are playing at home.  Others seemed a little more pessimistic, saying that TCU might even be favored after having beaten OU.  I thought that was an overreaction to a big TCU win, and apparently Vegas agrees.  Still, I'll be very interested to see how this one moves over the next 24 hours as bettors react.

I'm curious what people think about this line.  In the poll below, let me know if it's too high, too low, or about right.  Also, here are a few others worthy of note:

Oklahoma -14.5 vs. Texas (Dallas)
West Virginia -3 at Texas Tech
OK State -21 at Kansas
Texas A&M -1 vs. Ole Miss
Auburn -3 at Mississippi State

I'll update with more as they become available.
